— The chance of rain continues into early Tuesday, as a line of storms pushes through the central part of the state.

"We could have occasional periods of rain well into the overnight period,” WRAL chief meteorologist Greg Fishel said.

The biggest threats from these storms would be strong winds and heavy rain.

“The same areas keep getting hit with wave after wave of heavy rain,” Fishel said, making it possible for some flooding in poor drainage areas.

A flood advisory remains in effect for several counties including Wilson, Nash and Johnston until 4 a.m. Tuesday.

Severe thunderstorms, mainly south of U.S. Highway 64, are possible.

"Once we get through tonight the threat of rainfall will be minimal for the next few days," Fishel said.

On Tuesday, clouds will linger over the state and spotty drizzle could continue, holding temperatures in the 60s and 70s through mid-week.

    I am fairly certain that WHO is correct.

    How about she!

    We sure do need this rain. Complainers take a hike. I am still thankful that God is still in control.

    I think if you can substitute the word him for the word who, then you would use whom. But I could be wrong because I am sure not an English major.

    I am fairly certain that WHO is correct. Are there any English majors who could clear this up for us?

    That should be "If you are impressed with yourself that would bring the total of those WHOM are to one".

    YouKiddingMe - does it make you feel important to offer nothing but negative posts? If you are impressed with yourself that would bring the total of those who are to one.

    Love WRAL weather team! I would only ask that the headline indicate the possibility of severe weather...rain is one thing-something that people may gloss over. Severe weather, well we know the importance of that!
